NASC Donation to Lighthouse Charity
The NASC has made a £2,700 donation to The Lighthouse Club ‘Construction Industry Charity.’
The money was raised for the charity which has delivered welfare and support to the construction community since 1956 from NASC supplier members’ contributions made towards the NASC 2015 Annual Ball tombola in Leeds, November 2015. And the substantial donation (over £1,000) now bestowed the NASC with the club’s “Charity Champions” status.
The construction charity cause is a particular favourite of new NASC Vice President, Des Moore, CEO of TRAD Scaffolding Group. He said: “The Lighthouse Club is the UK’s leading construction charity and we are only too happy to contribute to support this worthy cause, in our capacity as as the UK trade body for access and scaffolding. The charity does great work for the whole construction industry – not only in supporting those working within the sector and providing education to enhance people’s careers, but also to help make construction a safer industry, which is at the very core of what the NASC does.”
And NASC President Alan Lilley added: “It’s great to see NASC members being so generous with their donations to fabulous charitable organisations, like this one to the Lighthouse Club, which is all part of our wider corporate responsibility programme within the confederation. And we are thrilled to have been granted “Charity Champions” status by the organisation.”
Mandy Mallitt of the Lighthouse Club said: “This amazing amount will make such a difference to those families that come to us in their time of need, it really is very much appreciated.”
The Lighthouse Club exists to:
- Provide… financial assistance, welfare and wellbeing advice and emotional and legal support to the construction community to relieve hardship and stress.
- Promote… initiatives aimed at avoiding accidents and improving safety on construction sites.
- Support… educational initiatives aimed at improving employment conditions and career opportunities within the construction industry.
